Andrea Roth is a strong courtroom advocate who employs her courtroom skills in every case that she works on. She is also a leader outside the courtroom and is currently the President-Elect of the Houston Trial Lawyers Association. Andrea’s legal practice focuses primarily on helping people who have been injured because someone failed to do something or should have done something. Andrea is a native Houstonian and grew up understanding the importance of education. Andrea’s mom encouraged her while she was growing up that she could be whatever she wanted to be. Initially it was a pediatric neurosurgeon so she could help children who had cancer like her. When she was 3 years old, she was diagnosed with cancer and had to fight to survive. As she grew, she learned she had a passion for helping people who had been injured as a result of someone else’s wrongful acts.
Andrea attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Public Relations. While at Baylor, she actively participated in different clubs and organizations. She was a member of Kappa Delta, a Panhellenic sorority, and served as the Vice President of Standards. She was also active in Baylor Ambassadors. During the Texas Legislative Session, Baylor Ambassadors would go up to Austin and lobby for the continued funding of the Tuition Equalization Grant.
After graduating from Baylor, she followed in her mother’s footsteps and went to South Texas College of Law Houston. She graduated from South Texas College of Law Houston in May 2014. While in law school, Andrea interned for several different civil district court judges in Harris County. Andrea also interned at the Law Offices of Donna Roth, where she got first hand experience on developing and working on Plaintiff’s personal injury cases.
After becoming a lawyer, Andrea has practiced exclusively Plaintiff’s personal injury law. Andrea has always followed her passion in practicing plaintiff’s personal injury trial law. She strongly believes in helping people who have been injured and who need someone to stand up and be their voice. She believes in the Seventh Amendment, the right to trial by jury, and the basic principle that everybody is entitled to their day in court.
When Andrea is not active in the courtroom, she is very active in the Houston community and enjoys giving back to those who are less fortunate. She has served on the committee of the Houston Trial Lawyers Foundation, as well as the Bayou Ball Gala, benefitting the children at Shriners Children’s Hospital. She continues to lobby Texas state representatives in Austin to protect and preserve the Seventh Amendment. She serves as a weekly mentor at one of Houston’s underprivileged elementary schools, organizing a mock trial for the students to perform in “The Case of the Missing Cookies.” She helps and participate in a holiday party at the elementary school so that each child at the school is assured at least one holiday present and some fun and games during the holiday season. She actively participates in several professional organizations in an effort to learn more and to gain advice and wisdom from the trailblazers who have come before her.
